Clearwater Credit Union donates $25,000 to All Nations Health Center’s building campaign

MISSOULA, MT (December 2, 2020) — Clearwater Credit Union (Clearwater) announced a $25,000 donation to the Building Campaign of the All Nations Health Center (All Nations) – currently celebrating 50 years of service to Native Americans in Missoula and surrounding communities.

“With the ongoing public health and economic crises, supporting health care providers like All Nations Health Center is more important than ever,” said Jack Lawson, President & CEO of Clearwater Credit Union.  “We are really impressed with the commitment of All Nations to provide healthy lives for native people and the surrounding community through culturally-based, holistic health care.  We are proud to support this important work.”

Established in 1970, All Nations Health Center is the only Indian Health Service (IHS)-funded clinic serving Missoula and Ravalli counties. All Nations is currently housed in a leased space with two medical exam rooms and four mental health counseling offices. With contributions to their Building Campaign, All Nations hopes to secure funding to build an expanded facility, allowing them to serve more of the community.

“The small size of the space means that we are limited in our capacity to grow and meet the needs of our patients and community,” said D’Shane Barnett, Executive Director of the All Nations Health Center. “As we look toward our next 50 years, we are excited to develop a multi-use facility that not only houses our clinical services but also supports whole-person wellness for our clients and community.”

All Nations delivers a comprehensive suite of primary care services designed by Native Americans for Native Americans. However, the organization holds true to Native cultural values such as generosity, charity, and relationship. Their services are open to everyone in Missoula, regardless of race, ethnicity, or income level. They provide health services to around 750 Missoula families and households annually.
